Why Chiropractic is a Better Way of Treating Sports Injuries
Many sports injuries recur, simply because they never healed correctly in the first place. For example, joint injuries, including sprains and strains can result in a biomechanical dysfunction causing a decreased range of motion and an impact on other joints as the body attempts to compensate for the injury.
Joints heal incorrectly, in an incorrect position, leaving a permanent weakness that is more likely to suffer a similar injury again in the future. Scar tissue and adhesions can form that cause long-term pain, weakness and reduction in mobility. The body tries to compensate and this is one of the reasons why after an ankle injury, (for example), pain mysteriously starts in the knee or hip, sometime afterwards.
Chiropractic treatment for a sports injury, realigns any misalignment that has resulted from the injury, facilitating correct and complete healing with the aim of making the affected area, ‘good as new’ so that it is not prone to injury in the future. Ongoing Chiropractic care enables more rapid rehabilitation so that you can get back to playing the sport you love, more quickly.
Achieve Your Peak Performance with Chiropractic Care
Serious Athletes at all levels are looking for a way to improve reaction time and shave precious milliseconds from performance time. Sports Chiropractic is so attractive to Athletes because it is an entirely drug-free and holistic method of treatment. It pays close attention to the nutritional aspects of recovering from injury and achieving and maintaining peak performance.
By incorporating it as part of your fitness regime, you will be keeping your spine balanced optimally and your nervous system functioning at peak levels. Both of these things will contribute to making a very noticeable difference to your performance.
Ongoing Chiropractic care for Athletes is particularly important because micro traumas from repetitive use of joints and muscles over a long period can cause the same problems as a severe, sudden trauma. Correcting tiny imbalances as they occur can prevent this cumulative damage.
Chiropractic care is the perfect way to maintain the mechanics of an Athlete’s body so, if you would like to get your body back to running like a well-oiled machine (and keep it that way), pick up the phone and call us today!
